5 best free alternatives of Google Reader for Android devices

Google Reader
Hear that? That's the sound of millions of news junkies on the Web scrambling to find an alternative to Google Reader.

As you may have heard, Google Reader will soon be no more. The search giant has announced that it will shutter its much-maligned -- though still widely used -- RSS reader, which will, no doubt, leave many users in a tizzy, searching for other ways to subscribe to their favorite RSS feeds. Sure, Google Reader may not have been the most beautifully designed product to come out of Mountain View, Calif., but it sure was convenient. And now that it's going away, it's evident just how valuable it has been.

With that in mind, we've put together a list of what we think are the best replacements for the soon-to-be-late Google Reader. Plugged-in types won't want to miss a beat once Google Reader sees its sunset, so getting familiar with these alternatives now could be key.

Ideally, an RSS reader should be available on both mobile devices and desktop computers, so we tried our best to focus on this type of service.

That said, we also thought it important to mention a couple of services (at the bottom) that are only available on Android and iOS, simply because we know that they're viable alternatives, and more people than ever are reading on mobile devices these days anyway.

Finally, when you're ready to make the jump, be sure to check out the Data Liberation Front's primer on exporting your Reader data using Google Takeout.

5 Most Popular Downloaded Android Apps for Mobile Devices

Surfing the internet via smartphones has been a hot habit among the world.  People are all used to read pages online with smartphones in hand while they are waiting for the bus, walking home, on train, or even resting on sofa. However, most people have no idea on how to make online surfing safer and more convenient. That’s what I’m talking about today in the post. I would like to share some most popular and downloaded Android apps, which either helps make it safer and more convenient to surf the internet or delivers more fun for Android users.

1. Hotspot Shield VPN
Hotspot Shield VPN
If you're willing to put up with some ads, Hotspot Shield VPN is a free app that aims to make your Wi-Fi connections secure and protect your privacy while online.
The interface is clean and simple. Hotspot Shield VPN is basically ready to go as soon as you open it. It's capable of optimizing data flow, providing you with a little more mileage when using 3G or 4G networks (depending on your unit), and further encrypting your sent data so that info and messages will not be intercepted by a third party. It also shields your IP address, so you can surf anonymously. One downside to this simplicity is that you don't have direct control of the app. Instead, Hotspot Shield VPN adjusts settings and connects to networks on its own. The other is that the free version is supported by ads and doesn't give you access to customer service 24 hours a day.
